raised verge at centre and both ends. Heavy stone chimney at centre and west end.

A continuous band links the cills. The windows are early sash with heavy glazing
bars, narrow moulded cases, plain reveals, stone lintels with triple keystones.
2 more early windows survive complete at the west end of the ground floor of No
